A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words Modern Classic Hollis

My students need 16 copies of the modern classic Pictures of Hollis Woods, with an audio copy.

My Students

Just think, do remember what is was like to sit quietly as your teacher did the class read aloud? Do you remember that most times you never had the opportunity to share your thoughts about the book? Well in my classroom my students BOOK TALK.

I teach out in Golden Gates Florida, the back woods of the Everglades.

My students are a from a variety of different cultures and of low economic levels. Through our class read aloud, my students have discovered not only a love for hearing great stories, but they have also become quite effective at sharing their thoughts, defending their ideas and challenging each other in our rigorous class book talks.

My Project

Pictures of Hollis Woods will allow my students to experience the life of a troubled young lady, very similar to many of them. Through this character they will learn about perseverance, and that believing in themselves will always pay off. This will be a mentor text spring boarding for the students an activity of writing and publishing their own memoir like stories.

Your donation to this project A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words, will bring joy and excitement to my students, to have a challenging book that will inspire them for years to come.
